Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Our Church has a Mackie SR24.4 and we would like to run a Yamaha DTXPLORER drum trigger Module through it so we can adjust sound output and and it on our song recordings. Also have a Peavey M-2600 Mark V Amp if we need to runt through a Amp then to board.

    So I don't need to use the M-2600 just use the Amp already set up ( PLX2400) for Singers and music and a Peavey (PV500) for our Monitors. The signal I believe is sent from the mixer to the amps then to the speakers and monitors. I'm new at this. Also I use Aux out 1 & 2 in pre fader mode for stage monitors, could I use aux 3 in a pre fade and set up a monitor for drummer? Last ? I promise.

Hi, well this is indeed possible. What you need to do is obtain all the interconnection leads and a mixer and then it is a matter of hooking it all up. Everything, ANY external inputs, hooks up to an individual input on the mixer, these signals are then mixed and processed here in the mixer and then this output drives the main amp.

There should be no reason that we need to amplify our signal into the main output amp, and anyway usually a mixer will provide a suitable signal level. However if the signal is low, then there is no reason whay it may not be used, however I would suspect, it may "overdrive" the main amp? unless used at very low output levels. (Usually we only need a 1Volt PP signal anyway to drive to full volume)

So we need to connect all our "Input" devices to a mixer, then the output of the mixer goes to the main amp... This signal should provide all the required drive and even out the signal levels this will provide also a fully controllable mixed audio signal.

The resultant signal that comes out from the Mixer will then drive the main amp at a suitable level, and mix the signals together so they can be then processed by the main amp, and then on to the speakers.

Drum kit won't power up

Get a voltmeter and check the power to see if it is working at the plug. the voltage should be 12vdc. If you don't have a meter, just take the power adaptor to radio shack, or any electronics supply house.
They'll check it for you. below is a copy of the manual. Good Luck!

When hitting one drum, other drums are triggered... how do I fix that??

Usually there is a sensitivity parameter. Reduce the trigger sensitivity in the module. Refger to your user manual under "sensitivity".

Actually, ONLY TWO pins are used in the MIDI cable. The data is sent serially at a 31.25KBit rate.
You probably need to "map" the ones that aren't working into the appropriate codes to trigger the SR-18 sounds.

You need to COMPARE the codes sent from the DTX to those needed by the SR-18.

There also may be options in the DTX for type of drum kit such as "Latin" and selecting one of those may have the mapping already done.

In the literature of each device will be a list of the MIDI codes the DTX generates and those required by the SR-18.

essentially the percussion codes are NOT standardized completely between devices... but there is usually a way to "map" them to make it work.

you need to determine what midi note the DTXplorer is using for the snare, kick and 3rd tom, and set the SR-18 accordingly, or vica-versa. the midi notes for each instrument has to be the same.

if you cannot change the midi note in either unit to make them correspond, you can download a "midi mapper" program (i think e-drum might be one), there is freeware available if you search CNet. with a midi mapper program, you would have to get a midi/usb adapter for your computer and rouite the midi signal through a computer. midi mapping software allows you to change the midi note, when the hardware itself is incapable of doing so.

I just bought the DTXplorer e-kit, and have set it up perfectly, but get no sound from hitting anything.

Test the amplifier with another sound source to make sure the amp is good. Use a guitar or anything to test.

When i strike the Bass Drum pedal, i sometimes get a cymbal noise also coming out of the kit. Its not the crash or ride cymbal i can hear, as when i look at the display, i can see a little bar to the right...

First thing to check is if the vibrations of the bass drum amplified MIGHT be triggering the cymbal pickup. Damp the cymbal pad with your hand and see if it still does it. If not, then shield the drumset from the amplified output.

If this does not prevent the problem look for a grounding problem of the triggers.

Go to one of the suppliers. Most of them will have photos of the bass pedal assembly and if you can enlarge the photo, you should be able to figure how to assemble it.

Expect to find washers on shafts between things that rub.

Check on page 9 for example. While the photo isn't the greatest you can see where the spring is.

Dtxplorer volume knob problems

No one "glues" knobs on except inapt consumers. Make sure there is not a "set screw" in the side of it. If not, it just pulls off.
